the dark sky quilt was inspired by exactly what you'd think: a dark sky night. several dark nights, actually. but, even the longest and darkest nights have stars; and eventually the light returns to day.
"A star falls from the sky and into your hands. Then it seeps through your veins and swims inside your blood and becomes every part of you. And then you have to put it back into the sky. And it's the most painful thing you'll ever have to do and that you've ever done. But what's yours is yours. Whether it’s up in the sky or here in your hands. And one day, it'll fall from the sky and hit you in the head real hard and that time, you won't have to put it back in the sky again." -C. JoyBell C.
the variety of blue ombre light to dark fabrics are a mix of kona cotton solids, hand dyed fabrics sourced from around the country made by small businesses, designer prints including allison glass, and recycled linens (sheets, pillowcases). i love using recycled/reused/repurposed fabrics in an effort to reduce waste, and also because i believe that fabrics which have already been used carry stories of their own.
note: due to the nature of recycled fabrics being pre-used, any markings, discoloration, or any other "spots" on these fabrics are to be considered part of the fabric itself. each has been washed before being put into the creations.
all of my items are handmade by me, with love, as one-of-a-kind pieces of usable and functional art.
